  • Thanks for a great night last night. Weather cooperated very well, and all of the items that you had control of came together very well also. Route was fast and the volunteers and local PD were great. Great looking shirts as well. Looking forward to next year.

    • Hello everyone! I’m a distance runner and teacher in Portland, OR visiting your parts for a admin training in Boston and thought I’d grab a buddy and head your way for a wicked Friday the 13th! This will be our first time to Salem, and we need suggestions on lodgings…with showers:-)

  • I looks like the results and pace are from the guntime and not the nettime?
